Michał Smandek (1981, Katowice, Poland)

"I focus on the codependence of human actions and nature, space modifications, and examining the properties of the matter. In my journeys I seek inaccessible places which may become the background for my land-art. I create sculptures, installations and photographs. I appropriate situations of high artistic value for my own purposes. My artworks are founded on in-depth observation, detailed examination of hardly noticeable processes, and awareness of the performed gesture." M. Smandek
